Nip 'digital migration company' idea in the bud – Nduom advises gov't
Astute businessman Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom has
advised government to nip the idea to set up a
digital migration company and collect revenue from
it.

Dr. Nduom in his recent Facebook post noted that
there are more ‘socially responsible’ and
‘necessary economic problems’ which government
must channel its efforts at solving.

‘We must do what is needed, before we attempt to
do want we desire. Health care facilities,
schools, roads, water, bridges, electricity
needed!’

Below is the full statement of Dr. Nduom on
Facebook

A TERRIBLE IDEA WILL REMAIN TERRIBLE NO MATTER HOW
IT IS DRESSED UP.

I found this somewhere on the internet written by
a well-known media person:
"How will government generate revenue?

The idea is that, government will set up a digital
migration company that will manage the channels.
That company will take a commission for all
content encrypted.

So that the more content and the more subscribers
that pay for content, the more revenue at hand for
government.

For instance in a particular month, 10 million
Ghanaians have each paid 2 cedis for content
ranging from people who watched Ghana’s most
beautiful on TV3 PLUS, those who viewed
entertainment programs, news programs and special
event programs, the government receives
commissions and fees for being the spectrum
operator, those monies can be used to run the
system to reduce burden on tax money."

Government to set up a digital migration company
and collect revenue? Why? Bad, bad idea. Let's nip
this in the bud.

Government has more socially responsible and
necessary economic problems to solve.

We must do what is needed, before we attempt to do
want we desire. Health care facilities, schools,
roads, water, bridges, electricity needed!
